We plan to get an ocean boat next year. We are looking at a hard topped Hewes Craft or comparable Weldcraft. My question is should we pony up the money and buy a 24' or larger boat, or just get a 22' that is more affordable? How many people have bought the smaller boat and wished for a bigger boat right away? I'm trying to avoid buyers remorse and having to upsize right away. We have a family of 4 (2 small kids), but might take out some other families. Alright here's the question is the bigger boat worth the initial investment?
